Directions:



Actual Product Pic:


Texture & Scent:
This mask is not as wet as the other masks in this range, and i find that this dries up quite abit even before the 10 minute mark! By the 13th minute it's REALLY dry already!! lol!! This doesn't leave a sticky feel behind which is nice. This smells a little like a childhood liquid antibiotic i used to take (lol!), but thankfully its quite mild! :D

Packaging:


This mask is individually packed into their respective foil packs and is sold by the piece. Like the other masks in this range, the mouth part is ridiculously huge:



Time Test:
15-20 minutes! But this one kinda dries up before that...

Price & Availability:
This mask is priced at RM9.90 each and is available at all The Face Shop outlets. It's also available on Walgreens.com at $5 for two pieces :)


My $0.02:

I'm a huge fan of pomegranates (though its a little hard to find here!), so naturally i knew that i HAD to try this one out (haha, i know i got this on sale, but i would've gotten this anyways at retail because of this!)! :D

True to its claim, this mask does some pretty decent firming action!! :D After using it, my face feels really resilient yet comfortable!! There is a little brightening effect going on too! :D

This is how i look after using this mask:



The only gripe i have about this mask is that it dries up too quickly!! But since it works so nicely, i think i can overlook that flaw!! :D


Psssst: Remember i said in my Lancome Neuroshield review that this is the sunblock to go for if you need long protection? I must have forgotten to post this two weeks back, but i'm ELATED to annouce that L'Oreal has finally reformulated their sunblock to last 12 hours as well:



Hurrah for Loreal (and my bank account!! Hehehe!!)!! :D

  5. I need this! Thanks for the fab review. I'm so addicted to sheet masks these days and really liked the MBD Red Wine mask, which is supposed to be firming too.
